Gmail It is, for several years, one of the best and most effective tools both personally and professionally. Currently, in the context of a pandemic, it has undoubtedly intensified to bring any type of immediate relationship and communication closer.
But along with its growth in relation to use, the need to know whether or not the email in question was opened on the other side also intensified. In many cases, this data can be decisive to advance on a specific task or event.
On any type of platform there are tracking and reading confirmation systems. Some simpler than others. When hovering the mouse over that small drawing, a tab opens where information such as:
- The display time
- The type of device from which the mail was read
- And how many times did it open
Fortunately, there are 2 ways to see if someone opened an email in Gmail:
- You can request a voucher
- An email tracking tool can be used.
Both methods have their advantages and disadvantages. To remove this uncertainty, Gmail, which is one of the most used mail services in the world, also allows the installation of extensions to reveal if someone read the mail and even, if they downloaded the attachments.
- Using the browser Chrome can be searched Chrome virtual store and there are the most popular extensions which are: Yesware, Bananatag, Boomerang, Mail2Cloud, MailTrack and Sidekick.
In none of them are recipients notified that the mail is being traced. These extensions are free. However, if you want to verify other more specialized functions, the basic Gmail extension will not be enough and you will have to pay.
This type of service to find out if someone opened an email in Gmail, send an email or a notice of the type “arise“where they confirm that another recipient opened the message.
The disadvantage of these extensions – which are from Google Chrome – is that they only work on a computer or on the phone on which they were installed. But, if an email is sent from another computer, it will not be able to be tracked.
